Well, here we are at the end of this semester. I pray and hope that you are able to see with clarity the fallacies of these 5 Plans. I would be remiss and a failure to be a good professor if I did not give you the correct answer to the question: How Do You [...]
(This post is for those I wounded last week. I am truly sorry.) 15 While Jesus was having dinner at Levi’s house, many tax collectors and sinners were eating with Him and His disciples, for there were many who followed Him. 16 When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw Him eating [...]
Can you see the difference between "the church in the world" and "the world in the church"? Of course you can, unless you've been blinded by the Wicked One. When you try to operate your local church by the values and principles of this world, you will only be a petty and pathetic private club. [...]
The work of God's Grace is always about transforming us into the instruments He wants in order to reclaim His Creation's Image Bearers. Being "in the world but not of the world" is not only possible through His Grace, it is ESSENTIAL to be a real follower of Jesus!
If you are not a United Methodist, or have not been following "The Great Controversy", or are simply a United Methodist who has had their head buried in the sand while hoping "The Great Controversy" will just go away, these words from my heart and mind will probably not mean much to you and you [...]
I am...started to say "surprised" but really I'm not because I saw it coming from a mile away. I am...started to say "amazed" but that's not the word because there's nothing profound or significant in it. I am...started to say "speechless" but there's so much I could say. I am...started to say "fed-up" because I [...]
OK, since God calls us to be a Kingdom of Priests (1 Peter 2:9) I ask you: Whose altar is it? Priests in the Old Testament served before the Altar of God, meaning God owned that altar. If the altar is yours then the Fire of Revival will never fall on it. The fire from [...]
OK, I admit it. Sometimes I don't keep up with all the current events. The past 7 days, though, I have a good, a very good excuse. But then, don't we all? Well, I feel like mine has some merit. Last Wednesday I had a heart ablation from which I am recovering very well. Then [...]
I have some wonderful DNA in me, both the physical kind and that of the spiritual nature. But due to the nature of this fallen creation, I do have some "not-so-wonderful" DNA. On both sides of my DNA is a history of cardiovascular issues. My Dad has been on hypertension medications since he was in [...]
Remember that line from those Snickers commercials? I just love that ad campaign. I’ve always heard, “Never go grocery shopping when you are hungry.” Know what? It’s true! My wife Debbie will send me grocery shopping when the budget is a little tight. She sends me because I have a list—and I stick to that [...]
After just a short day of working in the yard, I had an epiphany. Actually it was more like a Leroy Jethro Gibbs slap up back of the head. I am so tired of being tired. I remember when (dear Lord, I am so sounding like an old geezer!) I would work all day in [...]
This is from my weekly devotional blog and the title of the book I'm working on...
